This is part 3 of a series on the inner attitude that has been permeating my heart as of late. I call it A Change of Heart, and A Happy List. Last night, during several bouts of sleeplessness, the words from wise teachers kept dancing in the darkness. Words to articulate what it is I have been feeling . . .
From Saki Santorelli, "turning towards", inspired by the Rumi's poem:
Don't turn your head. Keep looking
at the bandaged place. That's where
the Light enters you.
Turning towards . . . Saki kept repeating those words throughout our retreat.
From U Tejaniya, the title of a Tricycle article that never left me, 'The Curious Investigator'. And after further checking, the realization that the original title is instead 'The Wise Investigator' . . . The 'curious' part is for me to own completely.
Also from U Tejaniya, his wonderful list of 23 points regarding What is the Right Attitude for Meditation? Particularly 'relaxed', 'light', 'free', 'faith', and 'confidence'.
And I wonder, what is the urge of putting words on THIS?
The answer comes, easy. So I do not forget.
